    Contact them tomorrow by phone, tell them you just discovered the program but it seems like a perfect fit, and ask them whether you can apply even though the deadline has recently passed.

    I mean, why not? The worst thing they can do is say no.

    National Louis University's EdD in Adult and Continuing Education www.nl.edu/graduate/adult_education.cfm is mentioned in the short-residency section of Bears' Guide (BG15, 164-165; BG16, 176). From the website itself: "Classes meet eight weekends during the year and in three two-week summer institutes." It might be of value for those that can make the residencies. I was, of course, in error to include the other programs. Sorry.

    Yeah, that's my issue. I liked their admissions process too. They didn't rely on the GRE (in fact they don't require it). Instead, they used a portfolio and interview process.

    I thought that they took a cohort every year. I didn't know it was biannually. Oh well. :(

    Purdue University www.purdue.edu offers a Cohort PhD in Educational Administration. They emphasize that, while they use online techno;ogies, they do not consider this to be an online degree. The tuition portion of their website was a bit clunky, but tuition appears to be $265.60 for in-staters and $738.05 for out-of-staters. At those rates, this 63-hour doctorate runs a tally of $16,732.80 for in-staters and $46,497.15 for out-of-staters.

The University of Nebraska Lincoln also offers the Joint EdD in Educational Administration with the University of Nebraska Omaha.

    From the Great State of North Dakota

    Bears' Guide (BG15, 179 and BG16, 191-192) reports a short-residency PhD in Teaching and Learning with emphasis in Higher Education from the University of North Dakota www.und.edu . Tuition for the 60-hour program is $225.23/hour ($13,513.80 total) for North Dakota residents, $275.88/hour ($16,552.80 total) for Minnesota residents, $337.84/hour ($20,270.40 total) for Manitoba, Montana, Saskatchewan, and South Dakota residents, and $601.35/hour ($36,081.00) for all other out-of-staters. Given the residency requirements, it might have been better reported as a non-traditional residency program. They also offer non-traditional residential EdD and PhD degrees in Educational Leadership.
